Have you ever been struck with an overwhelming urge to throw your arms in the air and skip off down the trail while singing the lyrics to the theme of a 1965 musical about the Von Trapp family? Did you do it? Sometimes when out in nature you just can’t help it, especially when nature looks like this.
It’s why I usually hit the trails with close friends and family who understand the pure joy of journeying to these places. They’re more than happy to share in the musical celebration, even joining in singing the chorus lines and back up vocals whenever the need arises.
